“Après Ski,” the tale of a woman’s hookup with a hot stranger on the slopes, is one of the narratives featured on this female-founded app that boasts more than 150 short stories. The design is sleek, cool, and discreet, and the narrators and characters are of all races, genders, and sexual orientations. Unlike old school romance novels, the protagonists’ lives are grounded in the realities of millennial life in 2019 (brunch and dating apps, for example) in an organic way. Even The New Yorker approves.
Like an erotic, humorous version of The Moth, this podcast captures live recordings from Bawdy’s nationwide storytelling events, which feature real folks (and an eclectic mix of authors, comedians, sex educators, and actors). They tell stories about sexual encounters, gender, and even body image, onstage to an emotionally supportive crowd. Forbes calls it "sexy and silly while still being thought-provoking."
This site, founded by Caroline Spiegel (sister of Snap Inc. CEO Evan Spiegel), features both written and audio erotica all graded with a “fire rating” from one to five to judge a story’s hotness. “Quinn’s overall goal, our grand mission, is to be an intimacy guide for the new generation,” Spiegel told The Guardian. It accepts user-submitted tales, you can filter by tags (like “romance” and “accent”), and there’s a category of “POV” audio: a voice narrating what they're doing to the listener.
